So I recently purchased a TWSBI Vac Mini in Smoke from my local fountain pen store. I must say the filling mechanism is super cool and it writes really well, however, I am having an issue with it and I am seeking FPN community input. Today when I was writing, I noticed some ink drops on my thumb and the side of my middle finger where the grip section/cap threads would normally rest on my hand. My immediate thought was that there was a crack in the pen and that it was leaking onto my fingers. However, when I ran that section of the pen across some paper, there was no ink left behind nor was there any additional ink drip after more writing. I inspected the grip and cap threads with a flashlight and a laser pointer to see if there were any cracks and failed to see anything (in a way this was perhaps unsurprising as I never dropped the pen before). This left me thinking, could it just be ink trickle from being bounced around in my knapsack, or is there actually a crack in the pen I should look to get repaired? Has anyone else experienced something similar before? Thanks for any input!
7heDaniel posted a topic in TWSBIAs the title says. I realised that my nib was running a little dry and, as with a lot of vacuum fillers, I went to unscrew the piston knob at the top to break the seal so more ink could flow through. However, upon trying I literally could not move this piston knob no matter how hard I try. Granted, I don't go to the gym every single day, but damn. This is ridiculous. I've never had this problem before. Any help? Edit - I used it yesterday with absolutely no problems and I have had the pen for ~2 weeks. I unscrewed the piston knob yesterday and I didn't screw it on with a stupid amount of force. Edit 2 - Even with silicon grease this thing won't budge.
Hi everyone, This is my first post so I'm not too sure if this is the correct place to troubleshoot about my pen. Basically my 3rd Fountain pen - the OHTO Tasche isn't writing properly. It's brand new and opened the package to use it just yesterday. I've tried everything and found out that the nib and feeder alignment is off. Trouble is; I can't actually take out the nib and feeder. It's far too hard and all I'm getting is blisters and bruised thumbs. Any help would be fantastic. Once again my apologies if this isn't the right forum section.
WhatsNewSisyphus posted a topic in Other Brands - EuropeI got a sport classic EF, it was super scratch and the nib was actually slit not in the middle, weird I know, anyhow, I ground it to balance but it still is a very dry writer that takes pressure to write unlike all my other pens that just hydroplane on paper by their own weights. Before I ask customer support to send me a replacement section, I wanted to check with you all to ask how it is supposed to be writing.
